User interface Tips

(1) Always create a base control for all you gui widgets.
for eg.

public class UButton : System.Windows.Forms.Button
{

This will help you maintain consistency of gui elements across all user interfaces.

public class UForm : System.Windows.Forms.Form
{

}
This will help you maintain consistency across all forms.

(3) And similarly for web forms and user controls.
